ravaged by hurricane sandy. but the raise for the white house rolls on. mitt romney is spending the day in florida. a critical swing state. steve handelsman joins us with more on the campaign and what impacts sandy may have as this raise goes down to the wire. steve? >> reporter: when you're the president, what's better than to campaign without having to advertise or give a speech? and that's what the president is doing right now. political expert darrell watkins said the high praise that the governor is giving president obama is worth more than any speech he ever gave for governor romney. president obama set out to survey hurricane damage in new jersey. six days before the election, still no campaigning. mitt romney campaigned in tampa. sympathizing with the victims of sandy. >> the kind of trauma you've experienced here in florida more than once, and it's interesting to see how people come together. >> reporter: he pivoted to the election. >> now people coming together is also what is going to happen on november 7. >> reporter: the raice in floria is closer. but in ohio, it's still a
at this point. the president is still cancelling campaign days on the trail. mitt romney is postponing campaign events. underneath the surface, they're still waging a pretty aggressive back and forth, particularly in the state of ohio. hunkered down in washington for the second day, the president stopped by red cross headquarters. >> the reason we're here, the red cross knows what it's doing. my message to the federal government, no bureaucracy, no red tape. >> reporter: mitt romney, who had suspended campaigning for the day, travelled to the battle state of ohio to encourage donations to the red cross. >> i had a chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas, they talked about people having hard times. i appreciate the fact that people in dayton got up this morning, some went to the grocery store i see, and purchased some things that these families will need. >> reporter: and with presidential politics hanging in the balance. one of mr. romney's top supporters, chris christie had nothing but praise for the federal government. >> the president has been outstanding in this, so
: that is a look at mitt romney with five days to go. there is a mad dash to the finish line in the race for the white house. brand new details where the candidates are and what happens now. bill: serious questions also about the administration's claims that the deadly strike in benghazi came without warning. there are new documents just unearthed. you will see them and see what they tell us about what was happening in libya at the time. martha: we're getting a clearer picture of the scope of the damage sandy left behind. here is live look this morning with a boat sitting outside somebody's house in belmar, new jersey. we can also tell you that the former secretary of homeland security, governor tom ridge, is up in just a few minutes. he will talk to us about what he thinks is ahead in this whole sandy situation. be right back. are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. martha: all right. take a look at this live shot
conservative enough and not done enough to help romney in the early days and they feel like he's not -- has a strong enough back bone as a conservative leader in the senate and he's certainly been on opposite sides with you many times. can you talk about your relationship with him and how it's kind of changed from one where he was trying to actively get someone else to be the primarily candidate to where you guys are now, traveling around the country together campaigning? >> >> well i think what you find, people particularly wanting to find candidates, the candidates has to agree on this list of issues and if they don't, they're not perfect and the only perfect candidate is whether you run for office, then you never disagree with yourself, but of the thing is we'll always have some disagreements monday republicans but on the vast majority of issues of debt an overspending and the primary issues that affect the country, i think we're on the same page and i don't think you're hearing as much of that quibbling within the senate caucus. i haven't really heard that, and i think the 1 thing senat
that quote romney will win election day by double digits in florida. so why would romney be campaigning in a state that he is going to win by double digits. do you think this is all just bluster? >> oh, it is bluster. and i think he was in florida because of the potential damage on his stance on fema. florida more than anywhere else are particularly sensitive when it comes to national disasters. and floridians are very aware of the positives and some of the shortcomings of federal relief. but they do appear rate the good that can come from a federally managed system. and that's what we are seeing this week throughout the mid-atlantic. and governor's position where he stated it in the past that if he were elected, he would eliminate fema or reduce significantly the federal role in emergency response and i think that's something that i think floridians will shake their head and say you got to be kidding me. >> jennifer: that's fascinating that the notion of privatizing fema or pushing it on the state, will have an impact in florida. are they now considering which one
, guess what? it feels really close. that's why the president's here all day today. governor romney's here tonight with some stars of the republican party, local republicans think they'll have 35,000 people at that rally tonight. that's in the southwest corner of ohio. what they say is that both candidates right now are keeping their bases pretty strong. if you look at the cleveland area, the president runs strong. if you look across the industrial part of the northern part of the state, you see evidence the auto bailout is helping the president. down here in the cincinnati area, southwest ohio, governor romney is ahead in the polls. and that's significant. barack obama carried hamilton county, where i am, four years ago. if hamilton county is blue on election day, the president will win ohio and most likely be re-elected. at the moment the romney team thinks it can hold onto this state -- onto this part of the state. so it's just a feisty fight it all out intensity try to churn turnout. the romney campaign considers it a dead heat and believes it can make up the intensity on election day.
twice in the next four days, steve governor romney goes to new hampshire. only four electoral votes. if you look at map and what if scenarios, new hampshire could determine all this. obviously the president winner there by nine points over senator mccain. go ahead, steve. >> the number of times i played with these electoral maps come up with totals that are 271 to 267 is frighting. so new hampshire certainly could make a big if did recognize. you look at governor romney's team. talk to republicans and they think he has got momentum. there is public polling in recent days shown him doing well in new hampshire. sometimes with a slight lead. so they're feeling pretty good about new hampshire. bill: thank you, steve. martha: boy, that is fascinating. we'll see where this is going. we are just hearing from governor romney, his reaction to the new jobs number that came in. his response and live on the campaign trail with the governor coming up next. bill: also, martha, there are questions about how the obama administration handled the terror attack in libya in the early hours and days. se
votes means that romney will have to win on election day well more than half the votes in key states to win. but the president is not relying solely on early voting or even on this new rekindled bipartisan pitch. in this state alone, diane, president obama and his allies have run 16,000 more ads than romney and his allies. and if that's not enough for you, on monday, president obama will be back here in ohio with bruce springsteen. diane? >> okay, thank you jake. >>> and also tonight, the latest in our brand new daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final stretch. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. romney capturing images of his staff sneaking a nap as romney races to the finish. in just the last 24 hours, virginia -- >> virginia, we're going to win on november 6th, i'll tell you that. >> reporter: wisconsin. >> god bless the people of wisconsin. thank you. >> reporter: and tonight, oh
. with nine days until the election, obama and romney pull out all of the stops. the swing state showdown as the candidates criss-cross the country. we'll discuss where the race stands and what issues matter most with senators from the states that will decide this election. republicans rob portman of ohio and ron johnson of wisconsin. democrats mark warner of virginia and mark udall of colorado. then, how does the electoral map look going into the last full week of the campaign? we will ask our sunday panel to handicap where this race will be won and lost. and from the final debate to around the clock rallies we are in the home stretch on the trail. all right now on "fox news sunday." >> chris: and h hello again from fox news in washington. we'll get to our coverage of the presidential race in a moment. but first that huge storm that is bearing down on the east coast threatening millions as well as disrupting campaign schedules. here is the latest on the storm from the fox news extreme weather center in new york. >>> chris, we are looking at a storm likely that most of us on the east coas
in this crisis is obviously nonpartisan. i can't remember a day when mitt romney seemed less relevant to americans. except maybe yesterday. joining me now is steve kornacki co-host of "the cycle" here on msnbc. he used to cover governor christie and he's writing about how the hurricane has frozen the race for mitt romney. and joy reed, msnbc contributor and managing editor for thegrio.com. thanks for both of you for being here tonight. >> good to be here. >> steve, you write about this today. what do you make of christie? >> part is christie being christie to a certain extent. some people were trying to figure out if romney would put him on the ticket. this is one of the reasons that was never a serious possibility because he had-s his own man and they can't control him. but i think probably the best way to understand this is, by looking at new jersey politics. remembering in new jersey, blue state, president obama carried by a big margin in '08 and will carry it by a big margin next week. christie has to run for re-election in that state next year, 2013. he's fairly well positioned t
'll show you just how hard it is being mitt romney these days and being utterly irrelevant to the most important story in america. repairing the damage from hurricane sandy. and we'll show you that on video. we'll show you just how idiotic mitt romney can be when the anti-fema candidate tries to show his expertise in storm cleanup. this is video that you have got to see. it's in the "rewrite." ♪ chances are, you're not made of money, so don't overpay for motorcycle insurance. geico, see how much you could save. >>> they were political opponents just days ago. now they have bonded in tragedy. we'll have more on president obama and governor christie next. and what will happen just six days from now when polls open, or they try to open, in the midst of the cleanup from hurricane sandy? we'll have a look at election mechanics. that's coming up.

. >> with four days until an election, he has a real chance of winning, it's time to consider what mitt romney, the president, would do. >> washington is broken. i know what it takes to get this country back and we'll work with good democrats and good republicans to do that. [applause] america has always been basically a center right country. i don't think that's changed much, and i don't think you'll see mr. romney drag it radically to the right. that's not really him. >> we don't know who the real mitt romney is. who he is seems to depend upon who he's talking to, which constituency he aims to please. >> in these days before the election and after sandy, washington is a pretty gloomy place, quite why anyone would want to run this place is a bit of a mystery. but if mr. romney does win it will be precisely because he has capitalized on america's uncharacteristically pessimistic mood, promising a sunnier vision of the future, fueled by conservative faith in lower taxes and less regulation. >> those people in this country who want real change from day one are going to vote for paul ryan and mys
ground state polls edge to the president. >> mitt romney has about 48 adjust that. >> ohioan not be able to escape the political spotlight. president obama will be here day until the election day. >> of course, abc 7 is your for the most up-to-date information. with oure speaking partners at politico about what jobs report mean for president obama and mitt romney. >> the presidential race is just several big items on ballot in maryland. the final day for early in maryland. we are at a polling site in landover. last day of early voting in maryland. see the peopllined up .ehind you you can see this very long at this learning center. this is what people are having endure on this last day of voting. of these people got here this center opened at 8:00 in the morning. far, 1000 people have cast their ballots. statewide, records are being set .votingly 8% of eligible voters in the maryland have taken this early voting opportunity. as longhey are waiting four hours. are just try to make the best of it. >> i enjoyed it, got to meet some -- got to make some new friends. not trade experience for th
be tough on china. but the company mr. romney chose for his backdrop that day, the company that he chose to implicitly help make that case so happened to be a poster child for success by president obama in getting tough on china. in 2009 in the first months of president obama's presidency, american spring wire joined with two other makers to ask for help. china was unfairly dumping steel wire in the united states market at artificial prices. they asked for help. the commerce department said they would investigate and the commerce department did move to protect american spring wire. they cracked down on china for dumping their underpriced product. thus the company was benefitted. they got the help they wanted. a company that was then used as a backdrop for mitt romney saying president obama had not been tough on china. today mr. romney gave a major address on economic policy. this is part of his closing argument for the presidency. he delivered the speech at a company called kinsler construction services. mr. romney argued that president obama's stimulus had failed to help private compani

obama and mitt romney will be back on the campaign trail with five days left until the election. doug luzader is live for us. >> those are tough images. these are the latest poll numbers coming out from fox. the race tied up 46 a piece. that tightens slightly even earlier this month. the obama team is hoping that images we saw yesterday with the president acting as commander-in-chief will help boost those numbers. >>> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state an local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >>> the president will be back on the campaign trail in nevada and wisconsin. mitt romney will be in virginia at the rally yesterday in florida balancing his push for early voters during the poll of storm relief. >> please make sure you go out and vote early. if you have a dollar extra send it to the red cross for our friends that are in harm's way. i love you and i appreciate it and together we we are going to win. >>> both campaigns are battling for the independent voters that are generally favoring romn
to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours, you might get an additional point or two out of the few remaining undecided. host: the first call comes from frank in burke, virginia. caller: thank you to c-span. i want to talk about the balance in fairfax county, the most populous county in virginia. we have electronic and paper. they are outdated and they were supposed to have been disposed of five years ago. yet the options of paper or electronic when you go to vote. they're not just for emergency. guest: sometimes paper is better. i know it's not environmentally sound, but the more i look at the the ballot questions, the more i am always attracted to paper
on the obama economic council are supporting mitt romney because he does have a plan on day one to turn this country around in terms of jobs. with the auto economy and everything else, you need to put people back to work, and on day one he's going to get the energy economy going and allow us to have the keystone pipeline open up, be able to drill offshore in my home state of virginia so we can get those good jobs going, and then he is going to, you know, increase economic opportunity for everybody, so that's why he's having so many people, even people on the president's own economics council, are supporting mitt romney because he and paul ryan have a plan for day one to get jobs. i mean, this president -- >> i was asking you about the -- i was asking you specifically about the plan for the jobs for the auto industry, and i do want to mention, too, even chrysler's chief executive officer has debunked this ad. the jeeps will not be made in china. he said certainly not at the expense of the american workers. christianler -- >> he said -- i wanted to clear that up. >> that's what the ad poi
this momentum towards governor romney. the mishandling of the -- no transparency. 45 days after the fact. it's a great concern. either the president gave an order that was disobeyed by the secretary of defense to provide support in benghazi or he didn't, and i think people want answers before this election on that, so that's what's going to determine the outcome. we got a great ground game, and i expect governor romney to win a close election in virginia, candy. >> you may need some voters to get to the polls. we wish you well. got a big storm coming before we even get to the election. we'll have our fingers crossed for virginia and maryland and surrounding states. thank you for being here. former ohio governor, ted strickland, thank you as well. >>> when we return, the latest developments on hurricane sandy.  >>> the northeast is bracing for a hit from hurricane sandy. meteorologist bonnie schneider is at the cnn weather center tracking the storm. bonnie, what's the latest? >> right now, hurricane sandy is 575 miles south of new york city and the storm is on the move. as a category one, 75

this race in the final nine days? >> well, i do think that governor romney gained a little after the first debate. i think it levelled off. this race is where you and i have been -- i have said this to you many times over the course of the last year. it is a close race. as you look at these battleground states, we are even or ahead in virtually all of them in these critical states like ohio. we maintain a consistent lead. i think you had it as a three-point lead in october. a four-point lead with us at 50% as of friday, so, yes, that's how i view it, but the main thing is not to look at the polling, but to look at the voting. millions of people vote. about one-third of the people in iowa have voted, for example, and we believe that we are mounting up a very, very large lead in iowa based on where those early votes are coming from. we're enthused about what we're seeing. excuse me? >> democrats generally do better in most states in the early voting, the absentee. at least the early voting. >> the question -- but the question is, candy, how are you doing relative to the targets you set, rela

, as the romney camp did. they didn't mention, all day they didn't mention the 171,000, and you didn't hear the unemployment rate being discussed by the obama campaign. what we found on the road from florida all the way through the swing states, through virginia and to here is that largely people are interested in two things with employment, their own trend and their community's trend, right, because they know they prosper, particularly small businesses, if unemployment is lower in their community. we were in florida where the unemployment rate is higher than the national average, but housing had improved and things were looking better. we were in virginia where unemployment is lower, but a lot of that is due to government spending, and now we're in ohio where as you know, in youngston, that plant that was almost shut down, three shifts making the chevy crews. the toledo plant, they associate this with jobs and prosperity, and the auto industry and the other manufacturing industries, what you have is generations of people working in those industries so the trend does actually matter, and th
's all mitt romney needed. he turned massachusetts around. turned the deficit into a rainy kay -- day fund. >> and they are crisscrossing the nation, attracting huge crowds in one or the other of eight key battleground states in search of a break out message. >> there is no more serious message in the presidential campaign than who can you trust? trust matters. who is going to look out for you? and here's the thing. nevada, you know me by now. you know i say what i mean. and i mean what i say. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new, bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring america's families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. gwen: and that's just what you can see. the campaign is coming down to science -- numbers-crunching, door-knocking, message-crafting science. and that extends to politics at every level, including a critical group of tight senate races. at this point does anyone really know what is going to dies -- decide all this, gloria? >> no.

[cheers and applause] >> the looked like he was enjoying himself, which was not always the case in this campaign. people wondered after he still had a fight in him, after his first debate. he also had good reason to smile. the unexpected backing of new york mayor michael bloomberg, out from managing the city's response to hurricane sandy to endorse president obama. he was not un critical of the president, but he link to the hurricane to climate change and said that the storm has brought tuesday's election into
for the last five days romney has been at the 50% mark and had generally a three-point lead inching up a little bit today. something that has been the norm ever since that first presidential debate. romney with a slight lead but nothing he can feel comfortable with. >> geraldo: now, they say romney has the momentum but obama has the math. let's talk about the math the. some states we will be talking about, the battleground states. start with wisconsin, scott. how does the battleground state of wisconsin shape up? >> well, this state could become the new ohio this year. it could become the decisive battleground state. our latest numbers show 49 to 49 in wisconsin. a state where unlike say, ohio, or other parts around the country the republican ground game might actually be better than the democrats and the reason for that, they had all that practice in the scott walker recall election. right now the race is very tight. all four men on the ticket, obama, biden, ryan and romney are in wisconsin because it is that tight. and if wisconsin goes for mitt romney, that will be a shocking development. re
days, we were talking about how mitt romney has a message advantage in this respect -- he gets to say the same thing for the next nine days. because all he's trying to do is win over the swing voting women, if you will. that's swing voting women. yes he's got to figure out how to fix the auto bailout.if but you only has to talk one game. barack obama because he's putting together this tapestry, the coalition, has to hits, chris matthews likes to call it hit the xylophone. hit the note for labor, hit the note for women. it's more complicated. and i think that's why we've this the debate. macroversus micro. i think we're, the obama campaign in hindsight, this is how they get to 50-plus 1. it's the reason why you don't hear the larger message, because he can't do it. >> david, i disagree with your premise, i think yes, there are have been changes in position and i would argue there have been more changes in obama's positions frankly. think there's a very clear an extremely clear choice between a man who is saying i am going to run and govern with pro growth policies. i am going to govern

but i think for mitt romney and from barack obama, for the last six days of the campaign, assuming it does start up on wednesday again, i bet it's a slightly different tone. >> i think mother nature might take over. thank you, chuck todd. great reporting and analysis, as always. coming up, we'll continue to track sandy as it bears down on the east coast now under an hour, by the way, from making landfall. it's out there coming close. back with more after this. >>> welcome back to "hardball." there you saw it. did you see that crane going down in manhattan? it's a very powerful tropical storm and an hour from making landfall, sandy is. you just saw a partially collapsed crane there that we got on film and it hangs precariously. rehema ellis is live at the scene. this has become iconic with what is happening with the situation. >> reporter: it really has. the crane is starting to sway with the gusting winds, the high, gusting winds that we have. if it was dangerous before, it is absolutely frightening now. police were afraid that this would happen so they created this collapse zone.
